Administration vs Interaction
- 0May 6, '10 by dallet6Hi all! I'm a new nursing student and after a few weeks of learning, I'm curious about something. What percentage of time would you say you spend interacting with your actual clients vs. the amount of time you spend on paperwork and documentation? I'm referring to a hospital setting.
Thank you for your input!

Also our med-surg floor is primary care, meaning we have no CNA/LPNs or ancillary staff, so anything our patients want/need we do. Also how competent you are at charting makes a difference as well. I would say I spend 60% of the time with patients and 40% of the time with the patients and charts. Hopefully though the patient is asleep during that time. I try to do most of my charting/paperwork between midnight and 4am.
